    Portfolio Fund Assistance 9th Jan 18 at 5:07 PM
    Hi all,

    I need some portfolio fund assistance please. I have 45K cash in IWeb left to buy funds with to form my portfolio with my existing holdings as follows:

    10K Fundsmith
    10K VLS80
    5K Legg Mason IF Japan

    I'm trying to not split it between that many funds to keep costs to the absolute minimum.

    I've had suggestions before of types of things I need to look at to diversify and spread risk but I really need actual fund name suggestions as I'm no expert!

    I'd like a split of active/passive ideally too and i'm in this for the medium to long term (all being well!)

    Thanks in advance.

    That's the one, yes

    I think Bowlhead has given some pretty sound advice: Either you do research or you stick it all in a VLS

    Good question!


    Was looking for some lowest risk funds, would we agree VLS 20 is the lowest of the low? Any other suggestions?
